PH 329H God, Knowledge, and Language 3
This course explores a number of issues at the intersection of postmodern thought, theology, and Anglo-American (analytic) philosophy. We'll begin with the question, What is the nature of truth?, a question that is sharply to be distinguished from the following two: . Which claims or propositions are true? . How do we know what is true? After a detailed inquiry regarding the nature of truth, we'll consider the extent to which it's sensible to think that some theological claims are true. In this connection, we'll examine classical and contemporary views of the Divine nature. We'll then proceed to consider postmodern views of knowledge and interpretation, taking Descartes' philosophical project as our backdrop. During this part of the course, we'll examine recent debates between postmodernists and their critics (these debates take place both within and outside of Christian circles). Finally, we'll consider the question, Can Christian belief be reasonable in today's intellectual climate? This inquiry will require a deep investigation of the nature of human rationality and the prospective sources for reasonable belief. Periodic Offering.
